BlackHaddock (5849) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2016
4th June 2016, 12oz bottle into a lovely ’Kasteel’ glass. Looked great, black bodied with a solid tanned blanket of foam on top. Robust semi-burnt malts rule this brew giving an aroma and taste of ground coffee, dark chocolate and liquorice in equal measures. A true Dry Stout, I liked it.

olio (8882) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 13, 2016
355 ml bottle.
Pours dark red-brown, almost black color with a large fluffy and lasting head. Lots of dry malts on the nose, subtle chocolate notes, some mild hops and faint piney tones. Bitter dry malty flavor, some citric fruits come through, cocoa powder, subtle lingering spice notes on the finish. Medium carbonation, dry and bitter. Good but nothing special here.
